2012 British Open, Leaderboard Update: Brandt Snedeker Leads The Way As Tiger Woods Lurks

Austrailian Adam Scott put on a clinic on Thursday at the 2012 British Open, and backed it up with another terrific round on Friday at Royal Lytham & St. Annes. But it was Brandt Snedeker who stole the show in the second round, firing a 6-under 64 to vault atop the leaderboard at 10-under for the week.

Snedeker made history on Friday as he is now tied with Nick Faldo for the lowest 36-hole score ever at the Open. As for Scott, he used a second round 67 to leave him just one shot off the pace at 9-under in solo second.

Then there was Tiger Woods, who after a second straight round of 3-under 67 finds himself in solo third at 6-under. Tiger birdied three of his last four holes included a chip in from a greenside bunker on the 18th.

Paul Lawrie and Graeme McDowell headline a large group at 4-under for the week, while former champion Ernie Els is 3-under for the week. Phil Mickelson never got anything going, missing the cut at 10-over par.
